The Spicy Mami

Lil Mama’s Chicago-Style Hoagy

 

Tiffany Pauldon-Banks, Owner of Lil Mama's Chicago-Style Hoagy

 

“I’m not really a huge spicy food person, but I know a lot of people who are, so I wanted to create a hoagy for them! You have your tangy, spicy ingredients like spicy mustard, banana peppers, and jalapeños balanced by the savory, spicy ingredients like the pepper jack cheese and the Cajun mayo. The tomatoes, lettuce, and onions add a nice freshness. The honey-roasted turkey that we put on all our hoagies and our famous oil let you know you’re eating a Lil Mama’s hoagy. All the ingredients work together to accomplish an explosion of flavor.”
